Dear Beloved, As you read this mail,I don't feel sorry for me,but my desire is that You find a Place in Your Heart to assist me in fulfilling My Late Husband's Last Wish/will.I am Mrs. Mariam Assal from Kuwait.I am Married to Mr. Bassem Assal also from Kuwait,a Consultant with the Saudi Arabian Oil Company (SAUDI ARAMCO) in Saudi Arabia for 20 Years before he died on 5th of July in the Year 2003. We were married for fifteen years without a child.He died after a brief illness that lasted for Six weeks.Before his death,he made a vow to use his wealth for the down trodden and the less privileged in the society.And since his death,I have been trying to get someone I can trust to help me execute his wish,hence my sending you this mail.When my late husband was alive,he concealed the sum of US$8,500,000:00 (Eight Million,Five Hundred Thousand United States dollars) in a Consignment and Deposited in Security Vault with a Security and Finance Company in United Kingdom as Family Valuables and it is still with them till Date. Due to Constant Intimidation and Harrassment from My Late Husband's Relative,I had to flee Kuwait.Presently,I am in a hospital in the Bahamas undergoing treatment for esophageal cancer and recently,My Doctor told me that I have a very short time to live due to this Health problem but what disturbs me most though,is the stroke I had recently. Having known my condition,I decided to donate this fund to an individual or better still a God fearing person who will utilize this money in the way I am going to instruct herein.Furthermore,because relatives and friends have plundered so much of my Late Husband's wealth since my illness,Please,I beg you to help me stand as the beneficiary and collect the Funds from the Finance and Security Company in United Kingdom. I want someone who is God-fearing,whom will use this money to fund churches,orphanages and widows and to ensure that the house of God is maintained.I took this decision because I don't have any child that will inherit this money and my husband's relatives are die hard Fanatics.Hence,I don't want my husband's hard earned funds to be misused or spent in the manner in which my late husband did not specify. As soon as I receive Your response comfirming Your acceptance to act as on My behalf to Claim these Deposit,I shall furnish You relevant information thereto,which will authorise the Release of these Funds to You as my duly assigned Representative.Please my beloved for further communication on how we are going to conclude this,reach me on my private mail: email@example.com Please,do note that time is of essence due to my present Health Condition and as such,I appeal that prompt action needs to be taken so that this Deposit can be released while am still Present. Remain Blessed, Mrs. Mariam Assal.
